Aisha Buhari Nigerian Women Against CorruptionWife of the President Aisha Buhari said on Wednesday in Abuja that it was time Nigeria women joined forces against corruption.

Aisha Buhari made the call in Abuja at the inauguration of a programme titled: “Nigerian women against corruption’’.

The event was organised by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in collaboration with the wife of the President.

Prof. Grace Alele-Williams the first female Vice Chancellor in Nigeria, was also in attendance.

The sub-theme of the event was, “ A woman, who builds her home, can tame the corruption monster’’.

According to her, corruption has eaten deep into the fabric of the Nigerian Society.

“This is a clarion call for us women to wage a determined and sustainable war against corruption, which hinders development in our dear country,” she said.

Aisha Buhari also said that corruption had crippled development efforts in Nigeria thus leading to the decay of infrastructure, among others.

She said the impact of corruption was obvious in the economic, healthcare and education sectors as well as in the rate of unemployment in the country.

The wife of the President stated that women are the vital instruments in the fight against corruption, which she promised to champion.

She, therefore, urged the 36 state governors in the federation to launch the programme in their various states.

She spoke of the need for EFCC to form a network of women groups to ensure an effective and sustainable war against corruption in the country.

Aisha Buhari applauded EFCC for engaging women in the fight against corruption.

“Let me remind ourselves that the homes are our first institution and we cannot be good citizens in the larger society without embracing integrity, virtues and accountability,”  she said.

She stated that it is heart-warming to have a man of integrity and a crusader against corruption in the person of President Muhammadu Buhari as her husband.

She extolled the virtues of President Buhari and his vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, saying they are men of integrity.

Earlier, the wife of Vice President, Dolapo Osinbajo, described the day as a memorable one in the history of Nigerian women in view of their formal recognition as soldiers in the fight against corruption.

Osinbajo, who described women as agents of change, urged them to join the fight against corruption.

    I think the slogan should have been worded a little better. This is more of a calling to older and married women to bring their corrupt husbands to order or at least that’s kinda the vibe i got from it. It kinda alienated the singles and youth.

    How exactly is this supposed to work? Not sure if it was discussed and just not mentioned in the article. Will any woman threaten to leave their corrupt husband if he doesn’t change his ways? Report their corrupt husband to efcc? Just wondering how they plan to implement it. Will wait and see how it develops.

    Let us join hands together and tame these monsters!!! Tame though? Ok o!!

      Una wan make I laugh fall comot for chair oh! How will one bring a politician husband to order when his corrupt deeds are soaked in human blood, anchored in the occultic order, fueled by the need to feed my greed and wanton nature [as well as those of his relatives and side babes], and informed by a new culture that will stop according him respect in his community the minute it seems as if he has not amassed ill-gotten wealth? How can women be saddled with unshackling a monster we had no business bringing out of the dungeon? Worst part is many women no longer “raise their children.” Na house help oh, Aisha. we do our nails and watch makeup tutorials so that we can be up to date and competitive where those runs girls are concerned. Also, many of us went to school when they started the art of sleeping with lecturer for grades and when the Ministry of Education condoned unwritten pay to pass policy in our higher institutions. Problem is our value systems became warped. Moreover, many of us did runs before getting married. In fact, that is how come our husbands are not carpenters. We no do “anya ura.” We shine our eye well well to catch big fish. All the time we dey do runz, our parents did not look our way. We brought the finest gear home and shut their mouths with food for the day and excess for tomorrow. Some of us even bought cars for daddy and mommy. We paid the school fees of our siblings when government neglected its duty to Nigerian children. Our parents could only pray we did not die from our deeds. In fact at some point, they started tithing to get God to look the other way.

      If you want to end Kwarruption, government will need to create hope. Yeah. its an intangible but a reality. When people know that they have a tomorrow to look forward to, the innate value system created by God will not succumb to the calling of the world. One would be able to rationalize not sleeping with married men for daily bread, or kidnapping hot shots, or seeking ill gotten wealth in all its formats for the next meal or romp. That is what is needed. At the core of every human is the desire to succeed and retain their dignity in society. People have a natural aversion to that which will reduce their dignity in the eyes of others, even if it is a tiny bit. So the natural tendency is there. They just need to know the path to success and be assured that if they take that path, they have at least 50-60% chance of success. Those are great odds in our country given that right now, the chance of success is ZERO, NADA, zilch, 0!

    Everything is expensive in Nigeria, even ordinary chewing gum.
    Talk to your husband even if you have to do it in the other room for him to listen and agree to work towards making things better for Nigerians.
    People are suffering.

      Which was a brazen lie. I suppose the amounts collected for beauty book launches and get involved were illegal levies then? Aisha is a dreadfully bold liar. Sickening really, the hypocrisy.
